Bill Warner, PhD: The Hamas Jihad against Israel





The media does not take political Islam into account about the Hamas/Israel conflict. To understand the reality we must view it from the standpoint of jihad.

Noah Beck, The Investigative Project: Islam, Sexual Violence, and the West

http://www.investigativeproject.org/about.php

About The Investigative Project on Terrorism


The IPT accepts no funding from outside the United States, or from any governmental agency or political or religious institutions. Tax deductible contributions should be made to its fund-raising arm, the Investigative Project on Terrorism Foundation, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.The Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) is a non-profit research group founded by Steven Emerson in 1995. It is recognized as the world's most comprehensive data center on radical Islamic terrorist groups. For more than two decades, the IPT has investigated the operations, funding, activities and front groups of Islamic terrorist and extremist groups in the United States and around the world. It has become a principal source of critical evidence to a wide variety of government offices and law enforcement agencies, as well as the U.S. Congress and numerous public policy forums. Research carried out by the IPT team has formed the basis for thousands of articles and television specials on the subject of radical Islamic involvement in terrorism, and has even led to successful government action against terrorists and financiers based in the United States.
Founder and executive director Steven Emerson is an internationally recognized expert on terrorism and national security and author. Consulted by the White House, National Security Council, FBI, Justice Department, Congress and intelligence agencies, Mr. Emerson is in great demand as one of the most astute, insightful and knowledgeable experts in the world today on the threat and prospects of militant Islamic terrorism. He has been quoted in more than 500 news articles and has appeared frequently on network television. His 2002 best-selling book, American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us, provides the first context and understanding for how one of the most notorious terrorist groups in the world could have plotted the worst terrorist attack on American soil without detection or scrutiny by American authorities.

What others say about Emerson and the Investigative Project on Terrorism:

GOVERNMENT AND LAW ENFORCEMENT:

"Steve and the Investigative Project on Terrorism have done critically important work for so many years. I've relied on the research and publications that he's done, [and] I know many members of Congress have. If the IPT did not exist, our national security would have been eviscerated by now."
John Bolton, Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations
"If not for the IPT the militant Islamists and their cohorts will succeed in promoting their dangerous agenda...IPT has been working for decades, literally, to study and to report on these activities and to provide this information, both to the public and to those in the government. We owe the IPT a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid. The very least we can do is give them the fuel to fight this battle for all of us. For if they lose, we all lose. And when they win, we all win. "
Michael Mukasey, Former Attorney General of the United States
"The IPT is by far the most invaluable resource on radical Islam in the United States, if not the world. Its continued existence is absolutely imperative for the safety of this country. I have received more sensitive information about the activities of radical Islamic group operating in the U.S. from the IPT than I have received from the FBI, CIA, Department of Justice, and NCTC combined."
Frank Wolf, Former U.S. Representative, R- VA and Chairman of the FBI Appropriations Subcommittee
"The Investigative Project on Terrorism is critical to our nation's security. There is no other non-governmental group that has better intelligence or data on the threat to the United States and our allies. Making do with a bare bones budget, the IPT is a national treasure whose influence and achievements are unparalleled."
Pete Hoekstra, Former U.S. Representative, R-MI and Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
"[The Investigative Project] was a decade ahead of its time in focusing on the terrorist threat to the United States and to our homeland from Islamic extremism..."
U.S. Representative Brad Sherman, D-CA
United States House of Representatives
Committee on International Relations: Subcommittee on International Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Human Rights
Subject: Preventing the Entry of Terrorists Into the United States
February 13, 2004
Steve Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism is the most important source of information to me and many members of Congress on radical Islam and terrorism. They are a true national asset and treasure. Without their information, we would be much more insecure and endangered. I and so many thousands of our law enforcement and national security advisors consider them to be absolutely critical to our security and those of our allies like Israel. It would be a national security nightmare for the IPT not to have the resources it needs to carry out its mission in exposing and identifying the threat from stealth and violent jihadists. Steve Emerson and his team are true national heroes."
Sue Myrick, Former U.S. Representative, R-NC and Chairman of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus
"When FBI said there were no Web sites in the U.S. that were recruiting jihadists for training in Afghanistan or soliciting money for terrorist front groups, I asked Steve Emerson to check. Emerson had written the book American Jihad, which had told me more than the FBI ever had about radical Islamic groups in the U.S. Within days, Emerson had a long list of Web sites sitting on servers in the United States. I passed the list to Justice and the FBI..."
Richard A. Clarke, Former Chief Counter-Terrorism Advisor for the National Security Council, Author of Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror.
"Steven Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism, a not-for-profit research group, repeatedly told me things about terrorists on the web and terrorists in the United States that neither the CIA nor the FBI knew. Often he was right."
Richard A. Clarke in Your Government Failed You
"The Investigative Project has been one of the most important sources of accurate and timely information on the real goals and objectives of the wide spread and powerful Islamist movement."
Oliver "Buck" Revell, Former Associate Deputy Director-Investigations, FBI
"Steve Emerson and the Investigative Project (IP) do a really terrific job and the IP is a good repository for information. My experience with the IP is that they have been very methodical and very detail oriented in developing their information. They can look at an organization, particularly a complex organization and through public source information identify potential terrorist threats and possible links to terrorism."
Dennis Lormel, Former Chief of Terrorist Financing Operations at the FBI.
"Gathering information, the gathering of intelligence information about these terrorists organizations is the single most critical thing that we can do to prevent the next act of terrorism occurring in this country and to me the hallmark and characteristic of the Investigative Project is that they are truly a unique institution in the private sector doing a very important job that nobody else does."
Steven Pomerantz, Former Chief of Counterterrorism at the FBI
"Steve has been on the cutting edge of this for many years and if you look back over time and take a hard evaluation of the things he has accomplished and the kind of information he has made available to the public, the Congress, and to law enforcement, I think he has done an extremely valuable service."
Bob Blitzer, Former Counterterrorism Chief at the FBI
"....Emerson was helpful in preparing to cross-examine defense witnesses in the [1993 World Trade Center bombings] case....He's a valuable source of information and knowledge. And in terms of trying to find places to look for evidence, he's a very good person to talk to. He's got a lot of insight."
Andrew McCarthy, Former Assistant U.S. Attorney who prosecuted the 1993 World Trade Center bombings
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank the IPT team for the excellent product. I use much of your material in providing Intel Reports and training for my superiors and subordinates. The layout of the articles is logical and the content thorough. Thanks again for helping fight the war on terrorism!"
Sgt. Julio R. Piner, Supervisor, Miami Police Dept, Special Investigations Section, Intelligence & Counterterrorism Unit

MEDIA AND AUTHORS:

"Steve Emerson and his IPT crew are more knowledgeable about the operations of Islamic terrorism worldwide than any of the hundreds of experts I have interviewed on my show. His group is indispensable to the safety of this country. There is absolutely no one that can take the place of the IPT."
Judge Jeanine Pirro, Former Prosecutor, Judge and Fox News TV Host, "Justice with Judge Jeanine"
"The recent significant courtroom victories by victims of international terrorism can trace their success to Steve Emerson's pioneering work. Steve was the first to disclose how terror groups raise funds in the U.S. under the guise of charity and to identify their leadership. The victims and their lawyers owe Steve a great debt."
Stephen J. Landes Human Rights Attorney Representing Terror Victims
"The Investigative Project on Terrorism has become the most effective and influential counter-terrorist group in the country. No other group is as pivotal to our national security and those of our western allies. We owe Steven Emerson and the Investigative Project on Terrorism our total support on which he depends to protect our lives and that of future generations."
Steve Fustero, Publisher of the "Journal of Counter-Terrorism"
"From the outside looking in, there is no more an important organization to the security of this country than the IPT lead by Steve Emerson. I have had the honor of meeting Steve and his crew after 9-11 and I have never in my life witnessed such an impressive operation staffed by the most dedicated analysts and investigators in the world. We who don't deal with real day to day to problems have Steve Emerson to thank for keeping us safe. And for the sacrifices you have made Steve, all I can say is thank you."
John Voight, Actor
"Steve Emerson is one of the nation's best national security correspondents. His investigative work on radical Islamic fundamentalism is absolutely critical to this nation's national security. There is no one else who has exhibited the same expertise, courage and determination to tackle this vital issue."
A.M. Rosenthal, late-managing editor of the New York Times.
"With a largely young staff, including Arabic speakers, his outfit subscribes to Arab-language publications, surfs the Internet to visit radical sites, and use public documents to track overlapping directorships among groups. He also collected an impressive array of tapes, videos, and literature distributed by the groups, full of calls for jihad against the West and solicitations for cash..."
Douglas Farah, Blood From Stones: The Secret Financial Network of Terror.
"Steve, you have been following this guy [Sami Al-Arian], you have been tracking this guy. You've been - you've been demanding that they do something about this guy ... in fact, if there's one person in the nation who's probably single-handedly responsible for it [the arrest of Al-Arian], Steve Emerson."
Dan Abrams, The Abrams Report
"Obviously, you're one of the foremost experts on terrorism, not only in America, but across the world."
Joe Scarborough, MSNBC's Scarborough Country
"Steve Emerson knows what he's talking about with terrorism."
Chis Matthews, Hardball
"You, ladies and gentlemen of the IPT, are crucial to the education of policy-makers and aware citizens in the US and beyond. You demonstrate with every publication of the newsletter, the power of open source intelligence. I am proud of your work and of you."
Jeff Kamen, Co-Author of Final Warning: Averting Disaster in the New Age of Terrorism
"...[The] Investigative Project, the most comprehensive counter-terrorist institute in the world today. The Investigative Project is uniquely effective in tracking the activities of Islamic militant groups."
Stephen Schwartz, Author
"Researcher Steven Emerson digs deeper into the threat of Islamic terrorism than most journalists who cover the topic. That might be one reason why many journalists rely on his information for their own reporting. Using a staff of Arabic translators, the Freedom of Information Act, and his contacts at the FBI, Emerson generates the best information available on radical Islam and is increasingly consulted by Congress and other governmental bodies."
Eli Lake, The New York Sun
"No serious study of the terrorist threat to America and the West can take place without studying the work of Steve Emerson. He has been at it for longer than most, and to ignore his work is to imperil ourselves. He is a brave and serious scholar and investigator who helps show the way and is deserving of nothing less than the Presidential Medal of Freedom."

Islam, Sexual Violence, and the West

by Noah Beck
Special to IPT News
July 28, 2016
Noah Beck is the author of The Last Israelis, an apocalyptic novel about Iranian nukes and other geopolitical issues in the Middle East.
From the article:

The mass rape of hundreds of German women mostly by Muslim migrants last New Year's was recently revealed to be far worse than originally acknowledged. Authorities now believe that more than 1,200 women were sexually assaulted – more than twice the original estimate of 500. While more than 2,000 men were allegedly involved, only 120 suspects — about half of them recently arrived migrants — have been identified.
One explanation for why it took half a year for the full extent of the crime to be revealed is the German police's effort to avoid a public backlash against refugees. But ultimately, Holger Munch, president of the German Federal Crime Police Office, acknowledged to the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung that there is "a connection between the [sexual assaults] and the rapid migration in 2015."
...
In contrast to the initial cover-up by German police of the mass rape by mostly Muslim migrants, France's top security official recently spoke with candid alarm about the threat that his country faces. Just two days before the truck-ramming, ISIS-inspired massacre in Nice, Patrick Calvar, chief of the Directorate General of Internal Security, warned members of the French parliamentary commission that France is on the verge of a "civil war" that could be sparked by the mass sexual assault of women by migrants.
...
There are remarkable exceptions within Islam itself, such as the Tuareg, an Islamic tribe in Africa, where women embrace sexual freedoms, dictate who gets what in divorce, and don't wear the veil because men "want to see their beautiful faces." But how long can the Tuareg's enlightened version of Islam survive in southwest Libya when ISIS is expanding there, or in Mali, Niger and northern Nigeria, where Boko Haram is on the march?
There are also brave Muslim reformers trying to improve the way Islam treats women. However, they mostly operate in the West, where they still face death threats; one example is Irshad Manji. Another, Fadela Amara, founded Ni Putes Ni Soumises, a group that defends Muslim French girls against the pressures they face to wear the hijab, drop out of school, and marry early without the right to choose their husband. Amara went on to serve in the government of Nicolas Sarkozy, but she, too, received death threats for her efforts to liberate Muslim women.
Muslim feminists outside of the West assume far greater risks. Pakistani social media celebrity Qandeel ‎Baloch, who openly expressed her feminist views online, was recently strangled to death by her brother in their family's home, in an "honor killing." Her "intolerable behavior" is what drove him to murder her, he said, because her risqué persona was bringing "dishonor" to the family. There are an estimated 1,000 honor killings per year in Pakistan.

In addition to serving on numerous advisory boards, Bill is an original signer of the Manhattan Declaration.


CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGNS: Bill's campaign for Congress in 2000 was key in keeping the U.S. House in majority control, as his opponent, Minority Leader Dick Gephardt, had to give up plans of campaigning for other candidates. Gephardt boasted of being the next "Speaker" but instead had his toughest re-election, spending $6 million against Federer's $3 million from 35,000 contributors across America, in the nation's 3rd most expensive Congressional race that year.(US News & World Report, 11/7/06, listed nationally among the most expensive House races of 2000 & 2004). President Bush's uncle, William H.T. "Bucky" Bush, co-chaired Bill's finance committee. Speaker Dennis Hastert, Majority Leader Dick Army, Conference Chairman J.C. Watts, Jr., Ambassador Alan Keyes, Phyllis Schlafly, William J. Murray, David Limbaugh, Chief Justice Roy Moore and other national leaders campaigned for Bill. Written and/or radio endorsements were received from Pat Boone, Chuck Norris, Ted Nugent, Art Linkletter and Dr. James Dobson. "Highly effective political machinery" was Gephardt's reluctant admission of Federer in an appeal letter, as Bill received the most votes ever against him! The same week Bill won in court against Gephardt's machine, Gephardt announced he would not seek re-election. Bill ran in 2004, winning Jefferson County and receiving 47% of the vote, the highest number of votes received in Missouri's 3rd Congressional District by a Republican since statehood.

BIOGRAPHY: Born October 1, 1957, Bill was raised in south St. Louis, 5th of eleven children, Bill lettered in wrestling, football and was a state finalist in track-high hurdles. He graduated from St. Louis University High School ('76), studied at University of Dallas, Texas ('76-`78); in Rome, Italy ('78), and graduated from Saint Louis University (`80) with a degree in Accounting/Business Administration.

After college, Bill worked for Federer Realty, founded in 1913 by his grandfather, William A. Federer, who was president of the St. Louis Board of Realtors, as was his father Richard L. Federer, building large portions of the city and county. His uncle and namesake taught at St. Louis University, led retreats at White House Retreat Center and worked with native Americans, seniors and inner-city poor. His father's cousin, Charles A. Federer, Jr., was founder of Sky & Telescope Magazine at Harvard.

Bill worked in real estate, oil & gas industry (Santa Fe Industries `81-`84), and held positions with community organizations, charity groups, churches - working with youth, families, elderly and minorities. He served as a Scoutmaster, having been an Eagle Scout.

QURAN VS. CONSTITUTION: WHY THEY'RE INCOMPATIBLE

Exclusive: William Federer compares documents amendment by amendment


Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2009/09/111055/


William J. Federer is the author of the best-selling book “What Every American Needs to Know About the Quran: A History of Islam & the United States.”

President Barack Obama stated in Cairo, Egypt, June 4, 2009: “When the first Muslim American was recently elected to Congress, he took the oath to defend our Constitution using the … Holy Quran.”
The dilemma is: How can one swear to defend something upon a book that promotes the opposite?
The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion, yet the Quran states in Sura 4:89, “Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them wherever you find them.”
In Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari (Vol. 9, Book 84, No. 57), Muhammad said: “Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”
Islamic law relegates non-Muslims to “dhimmi” status, where they are not to propagate their customs amongst Muslims and cannot display a Cross or a Star of David.
The First Amendment states Congress shall not abridge “the freedom of speech,” yet Islamic law enforces dhimmi status on non-Muslims, prohibiting them from observing their religious practices publicly, raising their voices during prayer or ringing church bells.
The First Amendment states Congress cannot take away “the right of the people to peaceably assemble,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims cannot build any new places of worship or repair any old places Muslims have destroyed; they must allow Muslims to participate in their private meetings; they cannot bring their dead near the graveyards of Muslims or mourn their dead loudly.
The First Amendment states Congress cannot take away the right of the people “to petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims are not to harbor any hostility toward the Islamic state or give comfort to those who disagree with Islamic government.
The Second Amendment states, “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” yet Islamic law states non-Muslims cannot possess arms, swords or weapons of any kind.
The Third Amendment states one cannot be forced to “quarter” someone in their house, yet Islamic law states non-Muslims must entertain and feed for three days any Muslim who wants to stay in their home, and for a longer period if the Muslim falls ill – and they cannot prevent Muslim travelers from staying in their places of worship.
The Fourth Amendment guarantees “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures,” yet Islamic law states if a non-Muslim rides on a horse with a saddle and bridle, the horse can be taken away.
The Fifth Amendment states that “no person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime … without due process of law,” yet Muhammad said, “No Muslim should be killed for killing a Kafir (infidel)” (Hadith Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, No. 50).
The Sixth Amendment guarantees a “public trial by an impartial jury” and the Seventh Amendment states “the right of trial by jury shall be preserved,” yet Islamic law does not give non-Muslims equal legal standing with Muslims, even prohibiting a non-Muslim from testifying in court against a Muslim.
The Eighth Amendment states there shall be no “cruel and unusual punishments inflicted,” yet the Quran states:
“Cut off the hands of thieves, whether they are male or female, as punishment for what they have done – a deterrent from Allah” (Sura 5:38).
A raped woman is punished:
“The woman and the man guilty of adultery or fornication – flog each of them with a hundred stripes” (Sura 24:2).
Women can be beaten:
“If you experience rebellion from the women, you shall first talk to them, then (you may use negative incentives like) deserting them in bed, then you may (as a last alternative) beat them” (Sura 4:34).
Honor killings of wives and daughters who have embarrassed their families have been reported by the United Nations in Muslim populations of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Pakistan, Syria, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Yemen and increasing in Western nations.
The 13th Amendment states there shall be no “slavery or involuntary servitude,” yet the Quran accommodates slavery as Muhammad owned slaves.
The 14th Amendment guarantees citizens “equal protection of the laws,” yet the Quran does not consider Jews, Christians and other non-Muslims as equal to Muslims before the law.
Referring to Jews as “the People of the Book,” Muhammad said: “They are those whom Allah has cursed; who have been under his wrath; some of whom were turned into apes and swine” (Sura 5:60, 7:166, 2:65).
The 15th Amendment guarantees “the right of the citizens … to vote shall not be denied … on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude,” yet the fundamentalist interpretation of Islamic law does not allow voting, as democracy is considered people setting themselves in the place of Allah by making their own laws.
The 16th Amendment has some similarities with Islamic law, as “Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes on incomes from whatever source derived.” Muhammad said, “Fight those who believe not in Allah … until they pay the jizya [tax] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Sura 9:29).
The 18th Amendment has some similarities with Islamic law, as “the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors … for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited.”
The 19th Amendment allows women to vote, yet in strict Islamic countries women cannot vote.
The 21st Amendment allows for the sale of liquor, yet Islamic law prohibits non-Muslims from selling or drinking wine and liquor openly.
One would assume that to swear upon a book implies believing what is in that book.
As Muhammad was not just a religious leader, but also a political and military leader, Islam is not just a religious system, but also a political and military system.
Since no one has the authority to demand Muslims worldwide cease imitating the political/military example of Muhammad, when Muslims bow in prayer they are also pledging political/military allegiance to Mecca.
Swearing to defend the U.S. Constitution upon a Quran that promotes different values is a dilemma worthy of a presidential explanation.

Del 3 av 5. Alla människor upplever rädsla, och om man låter den ta över kan den bli ens värsta fiende. För att ta sig vidare gäller det för de elva återstående rekryterna att bevisa att de kan tygla och hantera sina rädslor när de utsätts för några riktiga mardrömsprövningar. Elitstyrkan Special Air Service är en stängd värld, men här återskapar fem kommandosoldater den hemliga och extremt tuffa rekryteringsprocessen och låter 30 vanliga män genomgå sitt livs prövning.

Professorn: ”Terrordåd i Sverige en tidsfråga”

Terrordåden i Europa har skakat hela världen. Trots att myndigheterna arbetar för att förhindra en attack i Sverige så tror professor Robert Egnell att det bara är en tidsfråga.

Stephen Coughlin, Secure Freedom Radio with Frank Gaffney: Who's Innocent, According to Shariah?



Muslim Brotherhood front groups and their apologists never tire of pointing out the strict Koranic injunctions against killing innocents. This is, of course, dissembling. In a rare radio interview, Major Stephen Coughlin (expert in Islamic law and former adviser to the Joint Chiefs of Staff) tackles an issue of the utmost importance: who is innocent under Shariah law and who is it permissible to kill? This distinction makes all the difference.

Raymond Ibrahim: Whitewashing Jihad, Shariah & Islam



Raymond Ibrahim (Middle East specialist and Associate fellow, Middle East Forum) testified before the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission in the House of Representatives. Reps. Frank Wolf and James McDermott presented "Under Threat: The Worsening Plight of Egypt's Coptic Christians."

Dr. Mark Durie: Paris attacks were not 'nihilism' but sacred strategy

A quote from the item in question:

Whatever this is, it is not a clash of civilisations. The concept of “civilisation” scarcely comes into it. Nor is it a struggle between competing sets of values, or a religious war, or a battle with an alien culture. There is no debate here – as there was in the Cold War – about how it is best for men to live: the enemy has stated explicitly that it does not revere life at all. On the contrary, it is in love with self-inflicted death, which it sees as the highest moral achievement.

Paris attacks were not 'nihilism' but sacred strategy


LEADING commentator Janet Daley's article in Saturday's Telegraph ‘The West is at war with a death cult’ stands for everything that is woeful about European elites’ response to Islamic jihad.

It is a triumph of religious illiteracy.

The jihadist enemy, she asserts, is utterly unintelligible, so beyond encompassing in ‘coherent, systematic thought’ that no vocabulary can describe it: ‘This is just insanity’, she writes. Because the enemy is ‘hysterical’, lacking 'rational demands', 'negotiable limits,’ or ‘intelligible objectives’ Daley claims it is pointless to subject its actions to any form of historical, social or theological analysis, for no-one should attempt to ‘impose logic on behaviour that is pathological’.

Despite this, Daley then ventures to offer analysis of and explanations for ISIS’ actions, but in doing so she relies upon her own conceptual categories, not those of ISIS.

Her explanations therefore fall wide of the mark.

...

Daley writes: ‘The enemy has stated explicitly that it does not revere life at all’ and ‘Civilians are not collateral damage in this campaign: their deaths are the whole point.’  She goes on to lament that the latest French attacks lack any purpose, but are ‘carried out for the sheer nihilistic thrill of it’.

The claim that ISIS does not ‘revere life’ seems to refer to any number of statements by Islamic radicals, including an ISIS militant who vowed to ‘fill the streets of Paris with dead bodies’, and boasted that ISIS ‘loves death like you love life’ (see here).  This is a theological reference to a series of verses in the Qur’an in which Jews are criticised for desiring life (Sura 2:94-96, 62:6-8).

According to the Qur’an, loving life is a characteristic of infidels (Sura 3:14; 14:3; 75:20; 76:27) because it causes them to disregard the importance of the next life.  The taunt much used by jihadis, ‘We love death like you love life’,  implies that jihadis are bound for paradise while their enemies are hell-bound.

The point of these statements is that Muslims are willing to fight to the death, while their infidel enemies will turn back in battle. This is not about reverence for life, but about who has the will to win. This has nothing to do with nihilism, which is a belief that there are no values, nothing to be loyal to, and no purpose in living. In fact ISIS fighters have strong and clear loyalties and values, alien though they may be to those of Europe.

Daley’s claim that the deaths are ‘the whole point’ is also mistaken. While it is true that the jihadis consider killing infidels a meritorious act, potentially earning the killer a place in paradise (see here), and they consider being killed in battle against infidels a ticket to paradise, in fact the killings do serve a strategic purpose. This is to make infidels afraid, and thereby to weaken their will to resist Islamic dominance.

This strategy is commended by the Qur’an, for example in Sura 8:12, 'I shall cast dread into the hearts of those who disbelieve. So strike above (their) necks and strike (off) all their fingers!', as well as by the successful example of Muhammad in fighting the Jews of Medina, referred to in Sura 33:26-27, ‘He brought down from their fortifications those of the People of the Book who supported them, and cast dread into their hearts. You killed a group (of them), and took captive (another) group. And he caused you to inherit their land, their homes, and their wealth, and a land you had not set foot on.’  A similar passage is Sura 59:2, which ISIS has in fact been quoting in its celebrations of the Paris carnage.

It may seem to Daley that ISIS’ often-stated intention of defeating the West is fanciful, but the point is to understand ISIS, and as far as it is concerned, these deadly attacks are instrumental in weakening the will of infidels and hastening eventual victory.

Daley wonders what possible point these attacks could serve. She speculates:  '… what is the alternative that is being demanded? Sharia law? The subjection of women? An end to liberal democracy? Are any of these things even within the bounds of consideration? What could be accomplished by national self-doubt or criticism at this point, when there is not even a reasonable basis for discussion with the enemy?'  It is hardly a secret that the ultimate goal of ISIS is to bring non-Muslims everywhere  to convert to Islam or live under an Islamic caliphate as dhimmis. Sharia law and the subjection of women are part and parcel of this.

It is odd that Daley laments having no reasonable basis for negotiating with the enemy.  ISIS is not playing by a Western-style negotiating rule book. It is following Muhammad’s instructions to his followers to offer three choices to infidels: conversion, surrender, or the sword.  Bin Ladin has explained that the West’s rejection of this framework is the whole reason for its conflict with what he calls ‘the authority of Islam’:
“Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue; one that demands our total support, with power and determination, with one voice, and it is: Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually? Yes. There are only three choices in Islam: [1] either willing submission [conversion]; or [2] payment of the jizya,through physical, though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam; or [3] the sword, for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live. The matter is summed up for every person alive: Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die.” (The Al Qaeda Reader)
 It may seem unimaginable to European elites that ISIS is fighting for the goal of the surrender or conversion of Europe, but ISIS is thinking in time frames which extend to centuries, and their forebears conquered vast territories using such tactics.  A final act of conquest can be preceded by decades, or even centuries, of military raids.

While killing is currently the main mode of ISIS’ attacks inside the West, if they could they would use other tactics as well, such as taking booty and slaves or destroying infrastructure, as they have been doing in Syria and Iraq.

...

To combat this ideology it is necessary for Europe to prove ISIS wrong on all counts. It must show strength, not weakness. It must have confidence in its cultural and spiritual identity. It must be willing to fight for its survival. It must show that it believes in itself enough to fight for its future. It must defend its borders.  It must act like someone who intends to win an interminably long war against an implacable foe.
